Smartwatches are something most people can agree on — they make life easier and make you look pretty cool. That part is fine and dandy.

One little point of controversy? I know this is hard for Apple people to fathom, but some people are just not into the iPhone. And every time someone on Team Android searches for smartwatch deals, they get constant Apple Watch deals shoved in their face.

Not today, folks. Not today.

In the midst of Best Buy’s Apple Sales Event, they’re throwing a bone to Android users by having a pretty big sale on smartwatches from Samsung. Right now they’re offering two of Samsung’s best sellers, the Gear Sport and the Gear S3 Frontier, for $100 off. 

Here are the best deals up for grabs:

Sure, Apple Watches look sick, but that ultra-modern spaceship look just doesn’t match everyone’s style. For those who want nothing more than a classic watch with subtle bells and whistles, the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier watch checks every box. Premium aesthetics meet with hardcore build here, featuring a traditional analog face, touch display, and military-grade water and heat resistance. When it switches over to smart stuff, watch out: Sync it with your Android devices for text, call, and email alerts, music and apps, built-in GPS, heart monitoring, and more, all running days on end without needing to charge. 

Regularly $299.99, you can save $100 and get it for $199.99.

Same classic round watch look, but minus the bulk: The Gear S3 is the definition of minimalistic, acting just as much of a fitness tracker as it does a smartwatch. Track calories eaten and burned, dunk it in water up to 50 meters, and get in shape with the help of the built-in personal fitness coach. On the smart end, enjoy receiving and responding to calls and texts from your compatible Android devices, one-tap payment with Samsung pay, real-time monitoring and control of compatible smart devices like appliances, locks, and lights, and access to all of your favorite apps — all in a wildly compact device.

Regularly $299.99, you can save $100 and get it for $199.99.
